General Hardware Talk / Nyko Wand
« on: July 15, 2009, 09:02:13 AM »
I searched the forum, but I didn't see anything.

I saw in Wal-Mart the other day that Nyko had built a Wii remote clone.  I wondered if anyone has tried to use this item in place of a wii remote for whiteboard projects, and if so, if they have noticed any reasons one would be better than the other.  Does anyone know of such an experiment?

Hi Stephen,

You can set the keystroke Control + Escape to activate the Start Menu. However, I think you can only configure this in the Wiimote Presenter Mode in Smoothboard.

For Wiimote Presenter, the program actually recognize it as a continuous key press until released.

In the separate program, Wiimote Presenter, it recognizes a continuous key press, but in Smoothboard, presenter mode, it does not?  I will have to download the presenter program.  Is it as customizable as Smoothboard in its mapping of keys?

Regarding Ctrl+Esc - I guess I'll have to get more familiar with my Windows Keyboard shortcuts.  Maybe I can click over to WMP, play the tune, and click back.  Right now, I have the sounds embedded in the powerpoint presentations.  I think, when I was designing the program, I forgot that I would be using the Wiimote as a presenter rather than as the whiteboard.  Silly me...

You know, I wonder if I could use glovePIE for this instead.  Then I could hook a nunchuck up to the wii remote and map the A-Stick to the mousekey buttons.

Interesting...

Hey, everyone,

I'm looking for a way to have mouse control using the D-Pad on the wii remote.  I tried turning on mousekeys and mapping the D-Pad keys to the mousekeys directions, but since the program only recognizes the initial press, not sustained pressing, I was unable to use it as a mouse.

I like the IR pointer, but I don't like having to create an IR source each time.  I'm in a school, so a candle is out, and I haven't gone to the trouble to make a switchable IR beacon.  Occasionally when running a presentation (actually, for a Recorder lesson I'm about to teach) there are items I'd like to click.  In this case, it's to start a recording of some accompaniment music.  I'd like to be able to run the mouse over and click the start button.

Has anyone else worked out a way to do this?

Stephen
